It's wierd, we like scoop water with the back of our tounges, It's really bot efficient
In a previous question I answered "어떻게 개는 물을 마십니까?" So, how do I know if the order of my question is correct or not?
Korean sentences are always structured as "subject -> object -> verb" so since 어떻게 is an adverb, it will go before 마십니까; since 개는 is the subject of the sentence, it will go first. I hope my explanation makes sense lol.
I wish duolingo would explain stuff like this before lessons, it would make things way easier.
SOV is the basic order, but a Korean sentence does not have to be in that order. Use the right particles and then any order is okay as long as the verb is in the end.
I asked my Korean husband to double check but I think 어떻게 can be placed before the subject, before the object, or before the verb in this case and any of those 3 would be accepted in Korean speech.
Sentence structure is very fluid, as long as the verb is at the end (that's a hard rule)
How does that make any sense? I tried "How is the dog drinking water?" and don't see how that can be wrong, or how Korean would even differentiate the two sentences
This sentence is saying "in general, how do dogs drink water?" Your sentece implies there is one singke dog in that one singke moment in which you are questioning how it drinks water. Therefore they are very different sentences.
But. Since we do not know the context, why could it not be one dog, drinking its water so weird, that I would question how it is doing it? Would there be a difference in the sentence then?
